Research from Professor Oral Buyukozturk and junior Stephanie Chin shows the use of volcanic ash reduces embodied energy
Research from Professor Oral Buyukozturk, research scientist Kunal Kupwade-Patil and junior Stephanie Chin shows that using volcanic ash in place of traditional cement can reduce the embodied energy that goes into manufacturing concrete. Chin has been working in Professor Buyukozturk’s Laboratory for Infrastructure Science and Sustainability since she was a freshman. The research was conducted in collaboration with researchers in Kuwait. The findings were published in the Journal of Cleaner Production. Read more on MIT News.
